Just changed the search feature here on AppGlobe. Used to have WordPress standard search, but I thought why not use the best search engine ever written?
A good search engine for a website is a must. There’s noting more frustrating than trying to search for something that obviously should be there, and get no results back. I usually leave a website pretty quickly when that happends, or – if its important to find what I’m looking for – use Google to search the website. (query site:website-with-search-that-suck.com)
I’m not saying WordPress search sucks. Most websites with frustrating search I’ve come across haven’t been WordPress sites. Also, I know there are many plugins that can be used to make WordPress search more flexible and accurate, but still, none of them beats Google Custom Search.
